The invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made. Romans 1: 20

When spring brings us green
It will be for the right reason.
A path not yet clearly seen...
Will be revealed in due season,
Ere' the grass we'll need to mow,
Becomes visible neath' the snow.
Poetry by me AJP

My husband was just beginning to snow blow our long over 1/8 of a mile driveway when I
shot this image of him March 5th outside of our house. We had more snow with freezing
rain on the evening of the 8th which kept up until the 9th leaving our driveway in a big
sloppy mess that is now frozen over like a skating rink.

On the 10th after I re-submitted a second effort to replace with this shot on the fitness theme
it is snowing again....But the good news is that spring is on its way and none too soon:)
My husband is very fit at 72 years old to be able to snow blow a driveway that long with the
accumulation of snow that we've had this winter from the many snow storms.

Thank you so much Donald Garrett for the courtesy of the spotlight..Very appreciated!

Thank you also JanElle (Heather) for nominating this picture...Very appreciated!

    I don't think you could have composed this shot any better! One of the very best of its type I have ever seen.

    This is wonderful. Looks almost like sisyphus work, though.

    "sisyphus work" I don't know too much about Tomma since I am not versed in mythology but
    because I am curious I did look it up to see what it meant:)...Thank you all for your comments..

    Even though your huge weeping willow tree came down, it still provides beauty. Dorsey has his work cut out for him to keep paths open for you to get in and out of your place. This is an excellent photo, very well composed and interesting.
